Beckman Coulter Enters Commercial Dispute with Quidel to Sell BNP Directly

BREA, California--28 Nov--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

Beckman Coulter is committed to ensuring customers receive the highest quality assays, on-time, to help healthcare and laboratory professionals provide better patient care. To further these goals, Beckman Coulter plans in the future to sell directly to its customers a natriuretic peptide assay for its Access Family of Immunoassay Systems. Currently, Beckman Coulter customers have access to a BNP assay which, although developed and manufactured by Beckman Coulter, is sold exclusively by Quidel and its designated distributors. Quidel took over this commercial role as a result of its recent transaction with Alere.   Today, Beckman Coulter requested that the San Diego courts in California clarify and enforce Beckman Coulter's rights to sell a natriuretic peptide assay directly to its customers. While this legal matter is being resolved, Beckman Coulter's manufacture and supply of the TRIAGE(R) BNP assay to Quidel and Quidel's customer relationships are expected to continue as usual, and customers can therefore rely on continued and ongoing supply of high-quality BNP for use on Beckman Coulter analyzers.
